NIU didn't win the game but Ross Bowers definitely turned some heads. 

That exhilarating run gave the Huskies a 7-0 lead over #13 Utah on the road. Northern would ultimately lose the game 35-17 but it was an impressive showing.

What's even more impressive is what this Deadspin article points out. This isn't the first time that Bowers has done this. He transferred from Cal where he also played quarterback and did this back in 2017.

Keep your eye on DeKalb this season. Bowers might not be done making top 10 lists.
